We host only one wedding a month, throughout the summer months, which means that you will not feel rushed and can relax in the lead up to your special day. You may want a formal wedding reception, or something unusual and themed. We will help you to turn your ideas into reality. Whilst we are not licensed for wedding ceremonies, some couples have chosen to have a civil ceremony (perhaps at the Registry Office) and then hold a more personal ceremony here.
Bradgate Manor offers a truly stunning marquee wedding reception location, in a lovely, informal, woodland setting, where you and your guests can relax and celebrate together. Every wedding is special and at Bradgate Manor we enjoy the preparations and take pride in providing a friendly and professional service. We have gained considerable experience in working together with couples to help them achieve their dream day. The beauty of a marquee wedding reception is it that can be tailored so that it will be unique to you. We can recommend marquee and catering companies to suit your requirements allowing for your personal choice. At Bradgate Manor we allow access for the two days prior to the wedding, so that you can create the look and atmosphere of your choice, and have fun doing so.
You can choose the style of the marquee which will suit your theme, whether that is based on the grand look of a traditional style marquee, or an informal teepee style, or perhaps something in between. You and your friends and family can enhance the marquee with decorations and flowers that will set the scene for your very special occasion. You can wander in the garden or sit in the shade of the cherry tree. In the evening the fairy lights in the trees add to the magic of the celebration.
Bradgate Manor is located next to Netley Abbey and is the most complete surviving abbey built by the Cistercian monks in southern England. Almost all the walls of its 13th century church still stand, together with many monastic buildings. The Abbey and its grounds make for the perfect photo opportunity.
